‘Ruining Fingers Since 2014’ – Aaron Donald Proves Why ‘Running At Him’ Is A Bad Idea As Rams Beat Seahawks

Published 10/08/2021, 8:00 AM EDT


We might’ve just witnessed the most eventful game of the 2021 NFL season. Los Angeles Rams made the trip to the Hawks’ Nest to face a strong Seattle outfit. Watching Seattle’s incredible offence against the Rams’ super-powered defence was going to be delightful. In the end, the Rams prevailed, and most of the credit goes to Aaron Donald.

Los Angeles Rams’ star defensive tackle Aaron Donald put on an absolute show against the Seahawks. Not only did he put the opposition’s offence to the sword, he even took out their star quarterback. In the second quarter of the game, Russell Wilson attempted a forward pass, only for Donald’s frying pan-sized hand to come flying at him.

Upon contact, Russell Wilson‘s finger suffered the brunt of the damage, while Aaron Donald probably shrugged his shoulders and walked off. The human boulder actually caused Wilson to split his finger and miss the last quarter of the game. Geno Smith came on for the Seahawks’ QB #1, but even he could barely penetrate the Rams’ defense.

Donald also made history by breaking the all-time sacks record for the Los Angeles Rams. With one sack in the third quarter, tearing Russell Wilson to the ground, Donald picked up sack 88.5 of his career. This was enough to carry him to the creme de la creme of LA Rams’ defensive icons.

But, we all know it isn’t records or 99 Madden ratings that Donald is chasing. The seven-time Pro Bowler and three-time Defensive Player of the Year has not won the big one yet. Will 2021 be the year Aaron Donald finally reaches the summit? Can the beast win the Super Bowl and go on to become one of the greatest players in NFL history?
